The Quintile & Bi-Quintile
About the Quintile series of aspects
The quintile and the biquintile are "minor aspects", and are 72 and 144 degrees
respectively. These aspects are arrived at by dividing the
circle into 5, and are best understood by looking to the symbology behind the
Quintiles and bi-quintiles point to talent, the desire to create order and to
categorize, a fascination with patterns and structures, perfectionist
tendencies, and the desire to build or make things. These aspects in the fifth
harmonic have the characteristics of both the trine and opposition. They point
to awareness of conflicts or problems and finding solutions for them.
The following are descriptions of these
Quintile or Bi-Quintile aspects between the planets Sun
through Pluto. These aspects can also apply for the
semi-quintile, or decile, of 36 degrees, or the vigintile of
18 degrees, and will only apply for Sun-Mercury and
Sun-Venus aspects because of the proximity of the Sun to
Mercury and Venus.

whom you associate, and the path you choose in life.

clever and ingenious aesthetic sensitivity. Whether through art, music,
entertainment, or games, you have a gift of creative vision that breathes new
life into situations.

that require mastery and real originality. See
Sun Quintile Saturn.
Sun Quintile or Bi-Quintile Uranus

your life. Laughter, games, and learning together are likely to be more
important to you than physical attraction. You are likely to take a creative
approach to your home environment and your tastes are a bit unconventional or
more sensitively developed than other people in your family. If you have not
developed the qualities described above, then this is a side of yourself that
you may have suppressed or avoided, and consequently liberating your creative,
fun-loving side can fill an empty or missing aspect of your life.
Moon Quintile or Bi-Quintile Mars
For you competition is great fun. You want to win, but even more than winning,
you appreciate a competitor who forces you to improve your "game" and to develop
creative strategies to win. You love the competition and you love the

people who find challenges enjoyable and entertaining. For you play is like work
to others, and your work is like play.

help others to lighten up and drop their worries by simply being open to what is
interesting and enjoyable in their own lives.
Moon Quintile or Bi-Quintile Saturn
For your full creative powers to develop, you need periods of solitude and
reflection. You are not a recluse and you can fare well without solitude but

you. You have the ability to develop new methods and concepts that are useful

expressive art forms.

work that requires creativity. You are not inclined to rote learning and
repetition, nor are you inclined to repetitively practice or execute the same
sequence over and over again. You excel by allowing yourself time to appreciate
and understand the ingenuity, cleverness, and creative genius of others, which
inspires you more than dedication to one goal or way of doing something.
Mercury Quintile or Bi-Quintile Mars
You will never lose your child-like love of learning, but you may find
traditional teaching methods very boring and even mentally deadening. You love
to learn how things work and you are very bright, but a teacher that focuses on
memorization or trivial details will actually inhibit, rather than promote, your
progress in learning. You are a creative thinker and if your educational
training is too restrictive, then your full potential will become most evident
in your adult years. You should pursue a career that utilizes your gift for
creative thinking and analysis.
Mercury Quintile or Bi-Quintile Jupiter
You thoroughly enjoy being exposed to new ideas and perspectives. You seem to

and approaches very interesting. You tend to not be as opinionated as most

approach to life. You tend to be successful in an environment where products or
services are being developed or ingenuity is required. You adapt well to new
ideas and you are able to identify potential in a new idea while others may
overlook it because it does not fit into their preconceived notions. You have an
ability to enjoy clever ideas, whether they are new gadgets, or technology, a
fresh approach in arts or music, or any other area, without being burdened by
your personal responsibilities. While others have excuses, like not having
enough available time to learn something new, you avail yourself of the
opportunity to experience new things.

people are creative or playful. A very plain and ordinary environment is boring
and dull for you. You add color and spice to whatever you do, and you often

produced item. In romantic relationships and marriage you are most comfortable
with someone who is passionate, creative, or playful, and surprises you on

are particularly strong and important. Once the essence and power of a
particular style, design, concept, image, or archetype captures your attention,
you can become transfixed or obsessed with it. You have a keen appreciation and
sensitivity for how different designs or concepts have their own unique power.
You may, for example, have a keen appreciation of different artistic and musical
Venus Quintile or Bi-Quintile Uranus
Humor, music, entertainment, games or sports, and creativity of all kinds are
very important for you. You can manage reasonably well in a stable, predictable
routine, but you really come alive and are in your element when you can
periodically play, laugh, or be a bit zany. Children can bring out the best in
you by evoking your playful, creative side. Exploring many kinds of music,
dance, or theater may be an interest of yours.

ability to visualize things in different ways. You are sensitive and may find it

surprise and adventure, whether that be as simple as a trip to go skiing in the
mountains or to listen to music with unusual rhythms or a free-spirited quality.
If your life has a very stable, repetitive quality and routine, you need
periodic breaks from this to loosen up and let yourself be spontaneous and free.
You feel completely alive and in your element when there is some
adventure, experimentation, play, surprise, or creativity in your life.
Mars Quintile or Bi-Quintile Neptune

by imaginative ideas.
